Could I have played this any differently?

Hi sheshbesh

I think your play was fine pre-flop. But with the initiative I would prefer to c-bet the flop. At these stakes you may be up against a calling station that won't let go of a draw or even one pair. So after betting flop and turn, if a draw gets there have a plan on the river.

Yuk. I don't think you did much wrong. Whatever you do here he isn't folding his pair + flush draw in a million years. Tag him green and move on.

Hi sheshbesh213,

You got your money in good, just unlucky!
I think ForrestFive makes a good point though for cbetting this flop, particularly because 1. it was a limped pot and 2. It's a super wet flop and I hate to give away a free card
